Re: Update on Me

There has been alot of stubborn march babies lol . Try some cinnamon bark tea too if nothing happens it at least tastes yummy. (I just boiled cinnamon sticks and then added tea to it and let it seep for a while you can use any kind of tea you like )

Re: Update on Me

I went in for another biophysical profile and non-stress test last night. Baby is still doing very well, fluid levels are fine, good movements, very low. The hospital wanted to bully us into staying for induction last night and attempted to do so by making us wait for no reason, but my midwife convinced a doctor she likes to do the biophysical profile and check my fluid levels and let me go. My midwife massaged the acupressure points in my lower legs and ankles, gave me Black and Blue Cohosh and stripped my membranes.

At 10:49pm last night, I had my first contraction and had them around every ten minutes all night long. They slowed a little this morning, but have been averaging at eight to ten minutes apart and lasting thirty seconds (average) throughout the day. I had bloody show at 1:50am. So something worked and I am in labor now. It may be a little while yet until baby is born, but I am so glad that I started labor and should be able to avoid the hospital completely and have my homebirth now! Yayayayayayayayayay!
